Grasping For Air



Krystal is a proud Canadian girl, hailing from Sherwood Park, Alberta. She has a strong dislike for the winter, and a love spring. Married to her husband Steve, for 13 years, they have 4 beautiful red headed spawns ranging in ages 5-12. She has a strong love of coffee, sarcasm, and wine. (Not necessarily in that order either.)
Krystal loves to write about instalove between couples looking for love. She has a passion for contemporary romance and springs into menage as often as she can. Currently, she is working on 2 new series, the Adair Empire a darker, dirtier, and grittier series than what her readers are used to, but boy has she had a ton of fun writing them. The What Happens When series will begin with Anonymous Bride series will begin with Anonymous Bride and continue with untraditional love stories. Bringing you all the good feels, a ton of love, and maybe – if you’re lucky 😉 a surprise baby or two!
With the exception of Anonymous Bride, and Until Arsen you’ll be able to find all her books on all platforms!


First of all, can I just say how hard it is to write reviews for cliffhanger books? Cause ugh, this is realllyyyy hard. But also reaalllyyyyy worth it.

If you didn’t think this was going to be 5 stars, you obviously don’t know how obsessed I am with this series, this author, or Luther. Cause seriously, I’m obsessed with them all. I have the cover for Luther as my background on my phone (which can get kinda awkward at my new job but YOLO).

From the moment I read Luther (cause yeah, totes didn’t get the Adair memo at first) I’ve been obsessed. Each book gets a little darker, a little more twisted, a little sexier, and also makes you question your own mental instabilities, let alone KL’s. She brings in so many different aspects to this series, I could probably write a thesis on it (wait- I feel like I’ve said this before…). Anyways, this series is not for the faint of heart. If you’re not into dark and twisted alpha psychos that are obsessed with their women- you won’t like this series. And it’s cool… I won’t hold it against you (for too long). But if you like organized crime families that will go to bat for each other, literally kill for each other, than I welcome you to contact me every time KL makes you go WTF?!?!

Grasping for Air was the stunning, breath taking, HOT conclusion to the Adair series (I’M NOT CRYING YOU ARE). If you’re sitting here, reading this review hoping to get spoilers MOVE ALONG because I’m not giving them. But if you’re looking for a taste of what’s to come, let me tease you as much as I can. There’s a whole bunch of OMG, a lot of fanning your face because Jesus woman you need to go to Church, you’ll be clutching your pearls and a whole bunch of tears. AND THERE’S TWO EPILOGUES. Ugh. That second one though, had me seriously crying.

KL Donn makes me cry a lot.

If you read Carver, you’re probably yelling at me to tell you who this book is about. But I’m not gonna. It broke my heart all over again, and you need to get that too. Each sentence, each page, is another moment you’re going to want to experience for yourself. So get the series, love it, obsess over it, TALK TO ME ABOUT IT PLEASE. You won’t regret it.
